In this paper, we present the application of a multi-agent platform Magentix2 for the development of MAS in smart-homes. Specificallly, the use of Magentix2 ( platform facilitates the management of the multiple occupancy in smart living spaces. Virtual organizations provide the possibility of defining a set of norms and roles that facilitate the regulation and control of the actions that can be carried out by the internal and external agents depending on their profile. We illustrate the applicability of our proposal with a set of scenarios.
